I was recently going through my (2nd Gen) iPod Touch's storage settings in the most recent version of iTunes and noticed that there is a small gray/black bar next to the "Other" storage section. I highly doubt that this is simply a drop shadow as other depictions of this graph do not feature such a bar.

What does this small bar represent?

The black bar is outlined in red.

Note: The small bar is outlined in red.

  • For what it's worth, I have over 4,000 notes on this iPod from different papers/assignments but otherwise, it is a fairly typical iPod.

To my belief, that indeed is actually just a drop shadow. Since you're actually not on the newest version of iTunes, I can't verify that, since it looks different now, but here are a few photos:

iTunes 12 (latest version)

Version that looks the same as yours also showing shadow

Older version also displaying drop shadow

With that said, I could still be wrong. Check and make sure it isn't any of these categories:

  • Audio: Songs, audio podcasts, audiobooks, voice memos, and ringtones
  • Video: Movies, music videos, and TV shows
  • Photos: Camera Roll content, Photo Stream, and Photo Library
  • Apps: Installed apps
  • Books: iBooks books and PDF files
  • Documents & Data: Safari Offline Reading List, files created within apps, and app content like contacts, calendars, messages, and emails (and their attachments)
  • Other: Settings, Siri voices, system data, and cached files
